How To Grow

Sow the bean seed 25mm (1in) deep in dark, damp soil that has been well prepared with compost and/or aged manure. Avoid watering for a day or two afterwards. Space 7-10cm (3-4in) apart, allowing 50cm (20in) between the rows. Ensure the danger of frosts has passed and protect plants from wind. Plant in 3-5 metre (10-16ft) rows and remove weeds regularly. Water well during dry periods.

Additional fertilising is not required as legumes will produce their own nitrogen.

Regular harvesting will result in continued yields.

Sow again every 4-6 weeks to ensure a continuous crop during the season.

Ensure seeds are not sown too closely together & that each plant receives equal amounts of sunlight. Climbing runners may result if the plant is stressed.

Spray flowers with water misting spray to assist with flower & pod set.

When To Plant Spring and Summer; autumn also in warmer areas.
Harvest 8-10 weeks.
